This is our 3rd time here. Every time we go my Grandson is disappointed because the safari ride is not running. Says it is online, but not when you get there. Recorded message even gives times of departure. So you have to pay to get into zoo, plus pay for safari ride. I asked if we kept our receipt could we take safari ride some day it is running. Told no, you still have to pay for zoo entrance again plus safari ride. This us quite a gimmick. You know when you get there with a child, you have to go in, even if safari ride isn't running. Such false advertising to draw you in. Again telephone and website said it was running today.

Arrival: The earlier, the better. We arrived around 10am on a Saturday, and it wasn't super crowded. We had options to take the 12pm and other rides after.

Parking: We found parking to be pretty easy. There was street parking as well as some parking lots (one that was even marked as overflow parking).

Tickets: We ordered tickets online. That process was fairly easy. When we got to the entrance, they just asked for your name to pull up your tickets. You would then purchase your safari tickets there as well.

The Tour: It was self-guided. I read plenty of reviews saying it's a lot of walking. Eh....yes and no. You are walking the whole time, but for me, it was no different than walking the zoo. The only difference is that this place wasn't as big and had benches that weren't all occupied. Then, you got a walking break during the safari. What made this experience much better than the zoo was that it wasn't super crowded and you got to interact with the animals. We got to feed and touch animals (emu, kangaroo, cow, bison, koi fish, crocodiles, and more). It was an experience that we'll never forget.

Safari: The Safari ride was AMAZING!!! Our instructors were nice and awesome and kept us laughing and entertained. ***Make sure to bring animal food on the ride. The safari ride does indeed give you (1) complimentary cup, but you have (3) stops to feed and touch animals on the ride. Trust me when I say it's hard not to interact and run out of your first cup on the first stop. If you have wooden tokens, you can trade them in for food on the ride.

Animal Food: The food at the front is $5.00 or throughout the Preserve, and you'll find areas where you can pay 50 cent for a handful. We opted for the 50 cent food.

Food: There was no actual food for us to eat, but we packed sandwiches, snacks, and drinks and ate after the safari ride. They do have sanitizer throughout the venue, but we still brought our own. Wipes are a good investment as well if sanitizer doesn't make your hands feel really clean.

The Smell: I saw plenty of reviews complaining about the smell. For one, I didn't smell anything out of the ordinary. Animals smell, so I was so confused as to why it was even mentioned. Also, there was no repulsive smell throughout our visit. Please ignore those reviews.

Bathrooms: We actually didn't see any actual restrooms, but there were plenty of porta potty's. We had children, so we used them. They were clean. I'm not sure if it's because they are really sticklers about cleaning, or we went earlier enough where there was no room for people to dirty it up. Anywho, it worked out for us.

Overall: We are already planning to go back! This was a great experience.

My friend and I went on a Sunday at around 3pm and it was the perfect time of day because there weren’t any crowds.

First and foremost please visit the snake exhibit, it was THE most amazing we’ve ever seen.

We both thought this place was worth the admission.

They had more beautiful Macaws than any zoo or aviary we’ve ever been to.

They also have some truly gorgeous big cats…
four lions, a leopard, two lynxes and my favorite, the black jaguar.

We felt terrible though because more than once we saw people blatantly allowing their children to tap on the glass of the jaguar exhibit when there were signs all around not to so so because it can end up causing injury to the animal.

I never do this, but I had actually had to tell an adult woman to stop tapping on the glass! People are so insensitive.

We also noticed an elderly woman propping up her 3 year old grandson on a high fence in front of the lions cage and then leaving him up there unattended while she went to grab her cell phone from the stroller. What an idiot!

Sorry for the rant at the end there , but please have respect for the animals and take good care your children.

This place was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

We had so much fun at the Preserve! Our group was 1 adult and a few 16 year olds. This is an interactive and up close experience. The shaded trails and natural landscaping helps makes walking around enjoyable in itself. The the add ons/token exhibits were worth every bit of the extra cost because the tortoise feeding and bird enclosure were a delight. There were all ages on our safari ride and all of us seemed to be having fun feeding and petting the animals. So, although it has an additional fee, everyone seemed to be thoroughly satisfied with it.

We almost did not go because of reading some reviews. So glad we went in spite of the reviews. We had a great time. The animals were very healthy looking and well taken care of. I thought it was better than our big city zoo, I would definately recommend and I would go again.

Great day spent with a 6 yr old. Animals well cared for, lots of interactive areas to feed or pet (fees for food etc applied) but kid loved all of the close access. Safari ride a highlight and staff were so knowledgeable. Could wander at own pace.

Must do the safari. You are allowed to pet and feed most of the animals. The parakeet feeding was also a crazy experience. Also bring quarters as there are multiple feeding machines around the preserve which are cheaper than buying the $5 tokens.

Great experience and totally worth the drive my kiddos loved all the interactive things that were available. Feeding the tortoises, the bird aviary, the koi fish pond, and the safari ride. Was worth the drive for sure and will definitely be back again!
